Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th July 2017

We are celebrating our 20th Festival this year!

Gorleston Clifftop Festival has been running annually at the end of July each year since 1998.

The event was traditionally known as Gorleston Clifftop Gala and, in conjunction with the round table, hosted the Gorleston Raft Race. The main focus of the Gala was to host a platform where charities from across the area could come to one place, with lots of people, to fundraise for their individual good causes. This ethos is continued year after year and on Sunday, still hailed as the traditional ‘Gala day’, charities pitch up on a stretch of the cliffs with tombolas, human fruit machines, pig racing and many more fundraising activities to entice generous visitors to support causes close to their hearts.

Gorleston Clifftop Festival is now going from strength to strength, the aim is to put Saturday on the map and make it as popular as the Sunday. In 2013 the committee worked closely with SeaChange Arts from Great Yarmouth and hosted La Fete Franglais where Gorleston welcomed some of Europe’s most entertaining street performers, gymnasts and a very creative hair dresser! Beachside Dog Agility also joined the festival on the Saturday to put on continuous demonstrations for dog loving spectators and Active Norfolk hosted the sports carousel for those who wanted to take part in something active rather than be a spectator. The sun shone down on the mile stretch of the sunrise coast and with it brought tens of thousands of visitors on the Sunday making it the busiest weekend to date and proving just how popular this sea side event is.

Looking to the future of the festival the committee can only hope it gets bigger and better. Without fail there will always be two jam packed days with entertainment and music, a busy fairground and so much more.
